{REVIEW} Her Mad Hatter by Marie Hall

Title: Her Mad Hatter
Author: Marie Hall
Series: Kingdom #1
Genre: Adult, Romance, Fairy Tale
Publication: July 7th, 2012
Rating: ★★★★☆

Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter's Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate--and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys--throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.

The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland--and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy's mating--or fight for Alice.
"Bad boys needed love too."

The story starts with a sassy but absolutely amazing fairy - Danika. I instantly liked her because she seemed so different to the fairies we all know from our childhood. She is assigned to the "bad boys", including Hook, the Big-Bad-Wolf, Gerard, Genie and the Mad Hatter, to find their perfect matches, the love of their life but so far she had no luck.

The short introduction of everyone was really nice - one thing was totally clear right from the beginning - the "heroes" of our childhood are manly, sexy and well, "bad boys" when it comes to one specific thing! I don't mind, not at all. *grins cheeky* I had lots of fun to read about the Mad Hatter - this book is entirely about him and Alice - and his Wonderland.

"Wonderland was wonderful, but without a counterbalance, it could turn its inhabitants completely insane."

I don't know what I expected from this book - maybe a fun, romantic read about Alice and the Mad Hatter and how they slowly fall for each other? It was short but interesting, thrilling and sweet but also really, really hot. There were sad moments but I also laughed a lot!

Alice and the Mad Hatter as a couple? The true love that would save Hatter and Wonderland itself? I loved the idea and actually I never read/heard anything like that before. Alice was definitely likeable and I understood her actions - especially after we find out about her background and everything that had happened before.

"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."

The only thing that keeps me from giving this book the full 5-star rating is the length and the details - we are in Wonderland! I wanted to read more about the beauty of it, the dark sides and about some other inhabitants - I loved Leonard btw! Such a cutie! - and therefore it could have been a bit longer. It's still amazing and I still love it a lot and I already can't wait to read the next book - it's about Gerard Caron, the villain (or bad boy) from "Beauty and the Beast"!
